Trópico de Cáncer

Front Cover
Cátedra, Jun 30, 2004 - Fiction - 384 pages
Henry Miller fue un lector voraz y autodidacta, pensaba, siguiendo a Emerson, que la literatura del futuro seria autobiografica. Tropico de Cancer inicia con su publicacion en 1934 la explosion literaria y editorial de Miller. A pesar de que dio lugar a que se celebraran mas de sesenta juicios a proposito de su legalizacion, no fue escrito para escandalizar a los "burgueses bien pensantes"; su cuidada elaboracion prueba la aspiracion literaria de su autor, que logro hacer de ella un emblema de la desolada condicion del artista en aquellos tiempos.

About the author (2004)

Henry Miller, American novelist, was born in 1891 in New York City. His most famous works, Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn, were written while Miller was an expatriate living in Paris and were originally published in France in the mid-1930s. At that time, the two books were widely considered obscene in the United States, and they were banned from sale there until 1961. Some of Miller's other works include The Colossus of Maroussi and Big Sur and the Oranges of Heironymus Bosch. Henry Miller was married five times and he also had an extended love affair with Anais Nin. He died in 1980 in his Pacific Palisades, Calif., home.
